Untouched is a Merlin/Arthur vid by Solanyxe (2:55 min). It was a nominee in the 2008 Camelot Music Video Awards in the category 'Best Editing'. All the vids that recontextualized otherwise innocent clips to make Merlin/Arthur have sex or lusting after each other were put in the 'Editing' category and the winner in that category unsurprisingly was one of these vids.
By January 2009 YouTube had removed the sound and Solanyxe thought about taking it down because "without music, somehow the video leaves me 'untouched'" but she kept the vid up anyway and made a streaming version available at imeem. Since then imeem has closed down but YouTube must have restored the sound because currently it's working (as of August 2010).
- "I have to say that your videos are probably the best on here. The picture quality and the way you edit the clips with the music is extremely clever. In fact - I was no fan of the Arthur/Merlin pairing thing, but I think you have turned me !" (yumyumtoffeenutlatte , YouTube)
- "One thing that's missing though, is.... WHEN WILL THEY KISS? :)" (NickKh, YouTube)
- Solanyxe's reply: "Thank you! :D You're completely right - the kiss is still missing. When will they kiss, you ask? Tomorrow, when I upload my new M/A fanvid."
- "Hear that? That hissing sound? That's the screen smoking where I just touched it. That's how friggin HOT this vid was." (myrmidryad, YouTube)
